Facial Volume Loss
As we age, our face begins to lose its once youthful shape and contours. Collagen and elastin are compounds that give our skin its smooth, supple appearance, while maintaining its ability to stretch and tighten on its own. Due to aging, sun exposure, lifestyle habits the face begins to lose volume and wrinkles form.
We use a number of dermal fillers at Long Island Dermatology, some of our most requested come from the Juvéderm® family of fillers. They come in various formulations, all meant for specific corrective needs. Each filler is injected at various depths and at various points of the face to smooth out fine lines and deep wrinkles.
How It Works?
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC as part of the Juvéderm® family of fillers uses a hyaluronic acid base. It can be used to treat wrinkles in and around the mouth area however it works best and is traditionally meant to add volume to the mid-face/cheek region. Many patients have also found success using it to treat wrinkles along the temples as well. Adding volume to the mid-face/cheek area can provide patients with a very pleasing overall facial aesthetic. Contouring the cheeks, helps to bring out the overall shape of the face, making it far more angular and less rectangular. Injections performed at the mid-face can often fill the skin envelope, softening the nasolabial folds, without the need of additional injections.
